Celtic Announcements for 12/19/14

Celts, Good Friday Morning!  2014 has been a great year and I’m so proud to have been part of this Celtic Community.  When you take off this afternoon and start your two week break, remember, all of your friends and teachers will be here waiting for you in 2015 and we can all start the new year off together.  

 

The Adopt-A-Celt program is wrapping up today, and what an amazing year it was.  The Celtic community is a very generous place.  Between our community sponsors and the students and staff in the building, we’ve supported nearly 60 Celtic families in need.  In the building alone we sponsored 33 families and you all raised thousands of dollars with the help of your teachers to make a brighter holiday for many of your classmates.  Special thanks to the Choir program for sponsoring 9 families and raise over $1200!  It’s a great day to be a Celt!

 

Today’s the last day to check out a Library book for the break.  Stop in and let the amazing and talented librarians help you select the right book.

 

The talent show audition recordings are due today.  The talent show is February 27th! If you or your friends would like to be in it bring your audition tape to Mr. Heimerdinger's room today. We’re looking for all kinds of acts, so be sure to turn yours in!  

 

Your Celt wrestlers took on the McMinnville Grizzlies last night in a GVC dual meet. Despite getting pins from sophomore 126 pounder Sean Burrows and junior 182 pounder Gage Mance, the Celts fell short, 25 – 38. Another important match was senior Alvaro Venegas, who avenged his loss in last year’s district championship bout with a 6-5 victory.  On a brighter note JV won 43- 21, nice work grapplers.

Tomorrow the wrestlers travel to Liberty High School for a 16 team tournament. Over Christmas break, they will travel to San Jose, CA, to compete in an interstate tournament. Go Celts!

 

Seniors, I really hope you got your senior photo into the yearbook.  Because they’re due today, and no they won’t accept selfies...
